Museum Bahari Jakarta

Maritime Museum (Indonesia)

At the same day after visiting Pelabuhan Sunda Kelapa, i spared my time to come here, just to fulfill my curiousity. Across the Pasar Ikan ( fish traditional market), not far from the old port Sunda Kelapa. Its in the area of Jakarta Old town (Kota Tua). A short distance from other cultural heritage of Batavia history e.g.Museum Wayang, Jakarta History Museum (Museum Sejarah Jakarta), etc.




Pelabuhan Sunda Kelapa - Part 1

Pelabuhan Sunda Kelapa ( Port Sunda Kelapa )

I had a chance to go to Pelabuhan Sunda Kelapa, an old port at the northern Jakarta. That day I didnt have work to do, weather is good, so just drive to nothern site. I parked my car in Kota Tua (an area of old building builded long time before independence day. From here i rent a bicycle and ride along, Its not far, only about 15 minutes.
So here the history of the old port, taken from wikipedia

History
Sunda Kelapa is the old port of Jakarta located on the estuarine of Ciliwung River. "Sunda Kalapa" (Sundanese: "Coconut of Sunda") is the original name, and it was the main port of Sunda Kingdom of Pajajaran. The port is located in Penjaringan sub-district, of North Jakarta, Indonesia. Today the old port only accommodate pinisi, a traditional wooden sailing ship serving inter-island freight service in the archipelago. Although it is now only a minor port, Jakarta had its origins in Sunda Kelapa and it played a significant role in the city's development.




Kota Tua (Old Jakarta) - Part 1

Kota Tua Jakarta

This was the first thing that came to my mind that day. I need to go out, but didnt have any plan yet. It was a nice day to visit historical sites. To let the routine and complex things out off my brain for a while.

Jakarta Old Town (Kota Tua Jakarta), also known as Old Jakarta, and Old Batavia (Oud Batavia), is a small area between North Jakarta and West Jakarta. Its easy to reach. A walkable place from Busway stop and train station. Or just park your car right beside the area.
